Only in Oklahoma can you be living with a tornado watch, a severe thunderstorm warning and have an earthquake happen at the same time.

I swear I felt another one in the middle of the night last night.  Not sure what time but I woke up and things were shaking.  It was kind of like a slow shake and it lasted for a good 30 seconds I'll bet.  However there weren't really any bigger ones in the middle of the night which makes me wonder if I was dreaming.

I don't know about overnight, but it looks like there was one today:

They are still staying too weak to be felt here. I don't mind.  I felt the three biggest ones, though, that happened earlier in the month(Nov.), the foreshock, the biggest one and the strongest aftershock that came during a thunderstorm.  When the aftershock first came, I at first instantly thought it was the wind suddenly coming up from the storm until I heard the french doors to my living room rattle.  These earthquakes have been going on for around two years.

Oklahoma had a 4.0 earthquake Tues. morning.  This time it happened in a different part of the state.

I think an earthquake would be the scariest kind of weather phenomenon because there is no way to get away from it...We've had a couple 1pt and 2pt earthquakes but thankfully nothing major 8-)

For me a tornado warning is always more worrisome and stressful.  The earthquakes in my town, so far, haven't caused destruction.  But tornadoes certainly have before.  Two of them since 1975. Interesting that my mother at age 92 felt her first earthquake.
